Meet Your Freshmen 2007: Jordan Baker

After a busy week, we're back in business here at the THB. The third Husky freshman I would like you to meet is Jordan Baker.

As usual, you'll get the Jordan Baker file, followed up by the Q & A. Hopefully sometime this upcoming week, I can post the final Meet the Freshmen 2007 of this semester, which will be on Deron Cousens.


Name: Jordan Baker
Hometown: Chestermere, AB
Number: 22
Position: Wing/Center
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 168
Birthdate: 3/28/88
Last Team: Olds (AJHL)

Tech Hockey Blog: Why did you decide to come to Michigan Tech?

Jordan Baker: To play hockey for the Huskies.

THB: Were you looking at any other schools for DI hockey?

JB: Yes. [Thanks for elaborating on that, Jordan. :P No need for secrets at the Tech Hockey Blog!]

THB: Is the "Fighting Sioux" a hostile and abusive nickname?

JB: Ummmm, I suppose. I think it could get a little more abusive because their fans aren't as good as ours!

THB: Who is your roommate this year?

JB: Bennett Royer.

THB: Are you a good dancer?

JB: I'm not going to lie, I might be considered the best all round dancer in Canadian history.....NOT! [Well Jordan, as long as you can skate, that's all that matters.]

THB: Which road trip are you most looking forward to this season?

JB: I am most looking forward to The trip to Alaska or the trip to Wisco. [You will LOVE Alaska! The scenery is great, but it might not beat pissing off 10,000 Badger fans after you defeat their team at home.]

THB: How often do you get picked on, either by teammates or opponents, about your height? I sympathize with you.

JB: The truth, my teammates give me a rough time a lot but it's all fun and games; no hurt feelings. If an opponent said something I might take kung fu out on them! [Note: If you're an opposing player who will be playing Michigan Tech this year, DO NOT make fun of Jordan about his height.]

THB: What team do you most want to beat the most this season?

JB: Either Wisconsin or Northern

THB: What is your favorite type of music?

JB: I like alternative, punk, and country.....none of that rap stuff!

THB: Do you sing in the shower?

JB: Obviously. Who doesn't? [Good call.]

THB: What do you get on your pizza?

JB: Pepperoni with chili peppers.

THB: What are your feelings on the NCAA eliminating ties in college hockey?

JB: It's unfortunate but at the same time is great because overtime is twice and exciting because both teams are going for the win. They can't settle with just a tie.

THB: Are you the next Chris Conner?

JB: Well, those are some very big shoes to fill, but I would like to fill those given the opportunity with hard work and the right attitude.

THB: What can you tell me about Mitch's Misfits?

JB: I heard they're the craziest people ever...which is unreal!

THB: Briefly describe your best moment in your hockey career thus far.

JB: The best moment in my hockey career thus far is playing in the World
Under-17 hockey challenge. We place Silver.

THB: Who has been the biggest influence in your hockey career?

JB: I would have to say my family and friends.

THB: What other college hockey team besides Michigan Tech would you like to see do well this season?

JB: No one. I hope they all lose every game!

THB: Is there anything else you'd like to tell the Michigan Tech Hockey fans?

JB: I would like to tell all the fans to buckle up because it's going to be one amazing season. A season for the history books. Hope to see everyone from school there cheering the Huskies on!

Where did he say that he likes Wisconsin?

Well, hello Lover!

If he isn't the next CC, he may be the next Batty, at least personality-wise.

This is enough evidence that he is going to enjoy his stay in the great state of Wisconsin. Canadians know what they're talking about, unlike foolish Michigan people

You're an idiot. He isn't referring to the state of Wisconsin. He's talking about the amazing experience that is the Crease Creatures. There's really no other student section that comes close.
